Operationalizing a Definition of Precipitated Withdrawal and the Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Elimination of Illicitly Manufactured Fentanyl

Sponsor: The American Osteopathic Academy of Addiction Medicine

Kelly Dunn, PhD, MBA

This webinar will discuss challenges of illicit fentanyl consumption. The data presented will discuss a recent operational definition of precipitated opioid withdrawal, drawn from an empirical study, and will introduce how the unique absorption, distribution, metabolization, and excretion of fentanyl may be contributing to fentanyl’s unique profile of effects in patients.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of the seminar learners will be able to:

  1. Learn about the peripheral distribution and excretion patterns of fentanyl
  2. Understand how fentanyl may be interacting in unique ways with buprenorphine 
  3. Learn the operational definition for differentiating precipitated from spontaneous opioid withdrawal
